Injieh is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo. He was photographed next to his taxi.
Injieh is a 39-year-old mother to one son who is under 18 years old.
Injieh's husband is employed and earns a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's needs. Injieh's husband is planning to purchase a taxi and take internal and external requests. In this way, he will improve the family's income and help to improve their living conditions.
Injieh wants to help her husband complete purchasing the taxi, so she is requesting a loan from Faten. This loan will ensure Injieh and her family another source of income and enable them to live in better conditions.
